I am Marina, I love nature, traveling with my family to find natural and wild places, meeting new people and discovering different cultures. I searched and discovered this house close to the lake in a protected area surrounded by nature and I'm happy to share with people who come here the beauty of this wild place.

Stylish and immaculately presented house in the hills. The location is beautiful, the house is surrounded by greenery and the lake is just a short walk away. The house was well-equipped with everything we needed whilst kept simple. Highly recommended.

Lake Como, Italian Lakes

Speed boats, pizzerias and lakeside views

Lake Como has hit the headlines as a celebrity spot, full of film stars, rock stars and blockbuster villas. Beside the glitz and glamour, you’ll find plenty of family fun from speed boats to hire to lakeside pizzerias for lazy lunches and the Como/Brunate funicular for vertiginous views of the deep blue lake.
